Emily Whitaker, Laura Sullivan and Chris Martin were first-team selections, while Ellie Schad and Lucy Perry were named to the third-team.

A senior midfielder, Whitaker earns her second consecutive first-team nod. Whitaker played in 16 matches during this season. She had two goals and three assists for a total of seven points.

Sullivan caps her career with her fourth straight all-conference recognition and it’s the senior defender’s first appearance on the first-team squad. A sophomore goalkeeper, Martin earns her first all-conference honor.

The duo was part of an RC backline that tied for the top spot in the ODAC, with a 0.71 goals against average for the season. The Maroons led the league with 11 shutouts on the season. Martin’s 0.73 goals against average was second best in the league, while her .875 save percentage was tops in the ODAC.
